This Little Piggy in her Pen

This little piggy is going to market in style in her wood crate throne. At market she will shop for new shoes and clothes.

I did fussy cut Little Miss for this card. In fact, the words that are attached to her on the stamp, I cut them off. (See words that are on crate) I like the words, like the pig, just not together on the same stamp. Just be careful when doing this, as the words are awfully close to the pig and I clipped a corner of a letter. Nothing terrible, but use an exact knife not a scissors, for a more precise cut. And don't do it late at night...

For her wood crate throne, I trimmed down a piece of the wood crate framelits die. I just trimmed off the bottom and the tabs that you would normally used to assemble it as a three dimensional crate. And I popped it up with dimensionals.

She was colored in using the Blender Pen and the Powder Pink ink pad, and pool the ink in the top cover of the pad.

And don't you just love the new wood textures designer paper that Stampin' Up! just released! I am through about a half a stack already. It is 6x6 double printed paper. So many wood textures to choose from, so little time to play with them all!

And the bow, I was not too sure on the felt bows, but I went ahead and ordered a pack. I really like them. They add a pop color (In Colors to be exact) and a soft texture to your projects. And they come with a sticky back already on them.

So go ahead and take your piggy to market this weekend. And maybe one little piggy will stay home...
